Catch up!

Ugggh! Time is just flying by! Busy weeks... busy weekends!

Last weekend we went to a 3 day music fest in our tiny little community. It was so wicked! Headlining , were Corb Lund, Michael Franti, Sarah Harmer and Xavier Rudd. There were too many other fantastic shows to mention! We were so incredibly tired by the end of the weekend that it took the whole week to recover. The kiddos fared really well for some severe over stimulation. We brought earplugs, snacks, blankets, games and the wagon for them to crash in... festivals sure are different when you have a family!

This weekend has been catch up ... as well as prep for the start of the " school year"( pulling together goals for the year with a very loose plan of attack!) and a trip we will be taking in Sept for a family wedding. ( as well as the garage sale we are attempting to pull off sometime before we go!! Ahhh!)

Not on my list was an impromptu flannel board for my little guy who is showing an interest in letters( finally at almost 4! I am sure this will be mastered quickly) Made them from some flannel bits I had hanging around and a white board, taken apart and recovered temporarily with fabric. For well under 5 dollars I put together packages of upper and lower case letters as well as some numbers to go along with some other flannel story pieces we have tucked away.. Looks like it will work anyhow!
